In this talk I discuss the use of calorimeter timing both for d etector commissioning and in searches for new physics. In particular I present real and simulated cosmic ray muons data (2007) results for the ATLAS Tile Calorimeter system. The an alysis shows that several detector errors such as imperfect calibrations can be uncovered. I al so demonstrate the use of ATLAS Tile Calorimeter’s excellent timing resolution in suppressing cosmic ray fake missing transverse energy (/ ET) in searches for… CONTINUE READING
